Anybody put TVJ T-Armonds in their Rickenbacker 330/360?
I've never felt the need to change them.
I bought my 330 to get that classic Rickenbacker sound - otherwise I would not of bought the guitar.
Ricks aren't the best guitar to play feel wise but when you want that one classic sound you've got to have a Rick to get it.
T-armonds are great in Gretsch & Guild guitars - I don't know what they would sound like in a 330.
I imagine a thicker, darker sound which for me would go against what I want a Rick to sound like.
You sure have me wondering though....
I love the high gain bridge and middle positions in my 360. But the neck pup is a wee bit too bassy/vanilla sounding. Thought of
replacing it with a toaster. Then thst got me thinking about a T-Armond.
I finally decided to play in the middle position all the time, and just use the master tone for adjustments.
That's how I do it too.
I love that balance knob.
I often thought about putting one on my Telly.
I was initially underwhelmed with the sound I was getting from my 660-12 (didn't go down too well on the official Rick site hahaha)
That is until I bought a Janglebox. And it was a case of 'bingo'....nailing the sound I'd been trying to get. The one I have is the Byrds Ltd. Edition, fantastic.
I had a JangleBox,and wish I didnt sell it....! Sounds great with a Ric,for sure. I have been looking for one lately---pricey though...
I would be more inclined to think that a Rickenbacker Hi-Gain pickup installed in a Gretsch would be the way to go. I think those HiGains are the best pickups out there.And T-Armonds are great....
